I have "When the Rain Begins to fall" on my mp3 player. I still love that Pia song.\
Fuck you OP.
Garden hose! Garden hose!
Butterfly is because it''s just bad, a snoozer. Lonely Lady is a so bad it''s good laugh riot. I recently downloaded it and it''s "better" than I remembered, really good unintentional comedy throughout. Bad trashy dialogue delivered badly by bad actors. Here''s an example: Pia has a mental breakdown and is in the hospital. Her gay director friend visits her and tries to talk her out of her depression saying "I don''t wanna lose you." Except the actor delivers the line ridiculously, emphasizing the word "wanna" instead of "lose." It hilariously makes him sound like a brat who is more concerned with what he "wants", than whether his friend recovers. You practically expect him to stomp his feet and the ground and demand to be given some candy.
Perhaps THAT is more her kick, r3.
I''ve never seen her Golden Globe-winning performance in Butterfly, but The Lonely Lady is a camp classic from beginning to end.\
I love how she re-writes pages of dialogue for the actress mourning the death of her son (?) and replaces it with one word:\
I''ve never been able to see BUTTERFLY but I love THE LONELY LADY. The theme song is fantastic. I love the shower breakdown scene and of course, the finale when she wins the Biggest Hollywood Screenwriter Award or whatever it was.
I''m not the first one here who''s had to fuck her way to the top
Let''s not forget she started out as a child "actress" in [italic]Santa Claus Conquers the Martians[/italic].
I''m an impotent man who is jealous of the sexual prowess of garden hoses. That doesn''t make me pathetic, does it?
Leave Pia alone! We all know she''s a great actress because she won a Golden Globe
"The Lonely Lady" is by far more entertaining than "Butterfly". It makes no bones whatsoever about being a tawdry piece of campy trash, whereas "Butterfly" seemed to have higher aspirations. Plus, how can you hate a film where nearly EVERY character in the cast wants to screw Pia?
She''s in the attic!
I love Zia Pizzadora!
Her Oscar number in the third ''Naked Gun'' movie is a hoot and about the only thing watchable in it, other than Kathleen Freeman.
The Lonely Lady is begging for a revisitation. It's one of those perfect bad movies like Mommie Dearest where the plot is strangely engaging enough to hold your interest until the next ridiculous and hysterical thing happens. And it gets better as it goes along. The shower breakdown is as effective as any good movie in delivering a truly fulfilling climax.
It's a crime that this movie is not out on DVD yet.
When I was the co-editor of my high school newspaper I reviewed The Lonely Lady for our newspaper. Leave The Lonely Lady Alone.
